FUKUOKA - THE NOODLE CITY BUNRYU If you know ramen, then you know some of the best places, like Bunryu, are found in the warehouse districts. Instead of a snazzy decor, Bunryu focuses on getting the food right: from the handmade pork broth (made from Japanese pork bones) and noodles made on the premises, to the braised pork and boiled eggs. The super thin noodles pair perfectly with the light yet rich pork bone broth. What’s more, compared to other tonkotsu ramen, Bunryu’s is surprisingly odourless and light. The bowls are slightly smaller (like back in the day), so you can drink your soup to the last drop without getting too full. Feel free to season your ramen with tare (sauce), pickled red ginger and sesame seeds. And this being Fukuoka, you can also order kaedama (noodle refills). Bunryu’s ramen evolved to accommodate the busy wholesale market workers who wanted a quick, light meal. So if you prefer a less heavy bowl of ramen, this is the place for you.

ぶんりゅう Bunryu 4-2-8 Nanotsu, Chuo-ku 11:00~18:00 (Mon. ~ Sat.), 11:00~15:00 (Sun./Hol.) Closed: irregular 090-2588-7691

拉麵店 - 文隆

拉麵店─“文隆”,在灣岸的倉庫街中友善 舒適的環境裡佇立 33 個年頭。不以浮誇 的裝潢為噱頭,而是認真的熬煮出沒有雜 味的新鮮豚骨高湯,與店家自製的手作麵、 叉燒以及溏心蛋完美搭配成招牌拉麵。以 在店裡製作完成,需要過夜成熟的極細麵 對上醇香但不厚重的濃郁白濁豚骨湯配成 極品。店中的碗比一般拉麵店的碗小,所 以可以將湯喝完也不會太飽。店家提供拉 麵醬汁,可以在加點麵條後增添湯頭風味; 桌上也供應紅薑和芝麻,依個人喜好的調 配。“文隆”是為市場工作的人們快速提供 極細麵及豚骨湯頭而發展出的長濱拉麵, 也是對女性極推薦的拉麵店。

분류

연안 창고거리에 자리 잡은 분류는 인테리어나 선전에 힘쓰기보다 정성껏 육수를 우려내고 면을 뽑고 차슈를 만드는 데에 최선을 다하는 곳이다. 잡내가 거의 느껴지지 않는 신선한 육수가 특징적. 직접 반죽해 하루 숙성시킨 뒤 뽑아내는 얇디얇은 면발에 깔끔하면서도 진한 뽀얀 육수가 잘 어울린다. 면을 추가하면서 육수가 옅어졌을 때 넣는 소스와 생강초절임, 참깨 등이 각 테이블에 준비되어 있어 나만의 라 멘을 즐 길 수도 있다. 돼지 뼈를 우 려낸 육 수와 얇고 곧게 뻗은 면발이 특징인 하카타 라멘 중에서도 시장에서 바삐 일하는 이들에게 단시간에 라멘을 제공하면서 극도로 얇 은 면 과 깔 끔 한 육 수 의 형태 를 띠 게 된 나가하마 라멘에 속하는 분류는 여성들에게도 추천하고 싶은 곳이다.

AJI NO MASAFUKU

I

f you’re looking for a taste of local cuisine when you visit Fukuoka, look no further than Aji no Masafuku. Formerly a ramen shop, Aji no Masafuku switched to teishoku (set meals) in 1976 when it moved into the newly opened Tenjin Core. Later, it opened a second shop that it eventually moved to ACROS Fukuoka. Fresh fish is the centerpiece of most of the sets. Two of the more popular dishes are the goma saba (mackerel w/ sesame) and mirin-boshi (fish marinated in sweet rice wine). Rice and miso soup refills are free if you buy a set. Aji no Masafuku makes all of its own sauces, soups and so on (we recommend the original furikake rice seasonings!). Vegetarians should try the eggplant and miso set. If you want to sample authentic Hakata dishes, order the okyuto (noodles made from seaweed) or the game-ni—a stewed mélange of veggies and chicken in a sugar-and-soy sauce broth. And last but not least, you can never go wrong with the Masafuku Set, which comes with tempura and sashimi.

博多家庭料理 味之正福

如果你來福岡順道晚餐,來一個當地人都熟 悉的家常菜吧。前身為拉麵店,1976 年在天 神 CORE 開業時以定食屋為主,是餵飽福岡 人老字號定食店,也是商務旅客會特地帶家 庭來造訪的家庭餐廳。以博多的魚料理為中 心, 新鮮鯖魚生魚片加上自製的芝麻醬, 芥末, 海苔的博多郷土料理“麻醬鯖魚” ,和以醬油 及砂糖為底的特別受歡迎醃製魚。所有醬料 湯及醬菜都是店裡自製的,定食附的白飯及 味噌湯可免費續用,配著正福自製的香鬆可 以吃下好幾碗飯!素食者可選擇用甘辛味噌 炒的茄子味噌定食。推薦由天婦羅及生魚片 組成的正福定食。這是一家像回到故鄉般溫 暖的店。

아지노 마사후쿠

오래전 라멘 가게로 시작해 1976년에 텐진 코어 빌딩 개업과 동시에 정식집으 로 새로 태어난 아지노 마사후쿠는 텐진에서 일하는 사람들의 끼니를 책임져 온 후쿠오카의 터줏대감 정식집이다. 9년 전에는 후쿠오카의 랜드마크 아크로스 빌딩에 지점도 냈다. 지금은 가족 단위 고객부터 후쿠오카로 출장 온 이들도 찾아오는 유명 식당이다. 메뉴에는 하카타의 식탁에서 중심적인 존재인 생선을 사 용한 요리가 즐비하며 신선한 고등어회를 수제 참깨 소스, 고추냉이, 김과 함께 버무린 하카타 향토요리 고마사바와 생선을 간장, 설탕 등의 양념에 재운 미린보시가 특히 인기다. 양념과 다시, 장아찌까지 모두가 수제이며 정식에 포함되는 쌀밥과 된장국은 원한다면 얼마든지 더 먹을 수 있다. 마사후쿠 오리지널 후리카케는 최고의 밥 도둑! 베지테리안이라면 고기나 생선을 전혀 사용하지 않고 된장으로 볶아낸 나스미소 정식을, 후쿠오카의 향토요리를 맛보고 싶다면 오큐토(해초 가공식품)를 추천한다. 그 외에도 각종 채소와 닭고기를 간장과 설탕 등이 들어간 다시로 푹 조린 후쿠오카 가정요리 가메니와 튀김과 회도 나오는 마사후쿠 정식 등이 추천 메뉴.
